What Would You Do?

I FOUND ANOTHER ONE!!!!!  I stopped at the thrift store the other day and found another one of these wooden cases made for cassette tapes.  If you stamp with me, you know I like to store my ink pads in them.

This is the 5th one that I bought.  I really don't need them what would you do for this one?  Leave a comment below.

Washi Tape

This was the "3D" item we made at my June stamp club meetings.  They are wooden clothes pins covered with Stampin' Up!'s new washi tape.  It is very similar to masking tape.  We just covered the clothes pins with the tape and trimmed off any excess.  Clip them to a piece of card stock, pop them into a cello bag, and finish it off with a topper made using the Top Note Die and Big Shot.  Another quick and simple project.  Makes a cute little gift.  The clips can be used to keep your snack bags closed, as a way to organize papers, or as a bookmark.  Add a magnet to the back and stick them to your fridge for holding notes and recipes.

CONTACT ME if you would like information about my stamp club.

Use those Scraps!

When I was cutting the card stock to make the cards for stamp club meetings this month, I was left with a lot of 1/2" strips of card stock.  I just LOVE these new In Colors and did not want to waste a scrap!  So I used Stampin' Up!'s fabulous Paper Trimmer and cut the strips in half to 1/4" and then used them to make this card - quick and simple.  The Happy Birthday greeting is from the Sassy Salutations stamp set which is 25% off through the end of June only.

Six months until Christmas!

 Have you started working on your Christmas cards yet?!  It may be a little harder this year, if you want to use Stampin' Up! products.  Christmas stamps are missing from the current catalog and you will have to wait until August 1 to see this year's Holiday Catalog.  But this card shows how you can use a non-Christmas stamp set (Delicate Doilies) to make a Christmas Card.
 This is another Christmas card you can make with only a Christmas greeting set.  The top half of the white card stock is embossed using the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.
This card is made using a stamp set carried over from last year's holiday catalog.  You can find this set on MY STAMPIN' UP! WEBSITE 
and I will help you place your order.

Sneak Peek - a little late!

Thanks (again!) to everyone who has been asking where I have been.  May and June are always busy months at our house and this year we had even more to fit into our family schedule.  Now that school is out, I will have lots of time to stamp and make projects to share with you.  The photo above shows me working on some SWAP cards for my team meeting this week.  If you look carefully you will see the new catalog (!!!!), the 5 new In Colors (!!!!!) and a brand new stamp set called Mosaic Madness (!!!!!!)  All of these products are available to purchase now.

It you are local, I hope you will try to stop by this weekend to make the cards I am making in the photo and other projects using new stamp sets and new colors!  I also have retired stuff to sell, so bring your cash or checkbooks!
